Surgical Equipment Market Report, By Product Type (Surgical Sutures & Staplers, Handheld Instruments, Electrosurgical Devices), by Application (Neurosurgery, Wound Closure), by End-User (Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgical Centers) - Global Forecast Till 2023
Surgical equipment are used for both minor and major surgical procedures in hospitals and surgical centers and have a wide range of application in neurosurgery, ophthalmic surgery, wound closure, urology, cardiovascular surgeries, orthopedic surgery, and others. Electrosurgical devices, surgical sutures and staples, handheld instruments, electrosurgical generators, and monitoring devices are the various equipment that are used in surgeries.
The global surgical equipment market is driven by the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity, skin diseases, increasing number of surgeries in ambulatory surgical centers and hospitals, and rising geriatric population. Additionally, the growth of the medical device market, increasing number of surgical centers, and government initiatives have a synergistic effect on the market. However, the growth of the market is restrained by various factors such as high cost of surgical devices and strict regulatory policies for various regulatory authorities.
The global surgical equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period.
